11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Neovictorian (framed purse) on: March 28, 2006 01:03:31 PM
I made this purse long time ago as a part of a neovictorian outfit.
(You can see the whole outfit here-->https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87194.0)

Now I replaced the satin ribbon with wider velvet ribbon(I like it much better), but I only have a photo before the replacement.
It has a quilted fabric layer fused to outer fabric to give more weight and stiffness to hold the shape of the bag (I just fused it back to the outer fabric to make it stiff with fusibleweb.) and separate lining. The lady image on the bag is a painting by Harrison Fisher. I scanned the image from his anthology, printed on an inkjet printer transfer paper, and iron-transferred it on white cotton voile.
I hand-dyed the fabric for piping & lace to match the color with main fabric.
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Neovictorian (blouse + skirt + framed purse) on: March 28, 2006 01:02:41 PM
I made this last year and recently took photos modeled by my friend.

(You can see details of the bag here--> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87195.0)
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I made an Alexander McQueen knock-off sweater! on: February 03, 2006 12:17:26 PM
I made a knock-off of one of the sweaters in the Alexander McQueen FW 2005 collection.
I fell in love with this sweater the moment saw it, but it was about $2000!!
(You can see the origial design here -->http://www.firstview.com/WRTWfall2005/A_MCQUEEN/00035.L.JPG)
So I decided to make one. I began knitting it in Nov, and one month later I finished it.
It has been my favorite sweater this winter.
I put less flowers than the original design to make it comfortable to wear under a coat. I'm gonna make some more corsages and will put them on when I'm wearing it without a coat in the spring.
I used 9 skeins of Andean Treasure from knitpicks.com (100% baby alpaca). It's really soft and warm!

Upon the request of several of you, I made a pattern for the sweater and the flowers.
It's a combination of instructions and charts. I tried to make it as detailed as I can. It's made to fit bust size 33, 35, 37 and 39 inches.

Thanks Smiley

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cashmere lace & mother of pearl scarf on: December 02, 2005 05:15:11 PM
Here's my version of lace and agate scarf.
Those are actually mother of pearls.
The yarn is 100% cashmere bought on eBay.
It's really soft, warm and light!
This one is a holiday gift, and I'm gonna make my own when this semester ends.
I'm going to put MOP flowers on mine! Smiley

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Quilted knitting needle case! on: October 22, 2005 04:13:06 PM
Grin I finally made a needle case yesterday, and organized my needles which were lying around on the floor for months!  Tongue
I quilted in a thin batting at the back, so that it will snugly hold the needles.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rowan Butterfly! My first lace work! on: October 07, 2005 11:07:33 PM
Hello folks!
This is my first lace knitting attempt, and I love it!
(and also this is my first craftster posting! Grin)
I finished it couple of months ago, and it has been the most frequently worn top ever since.
I made it with Rowan Kidsilk Haze Toffee color.  I also made the camisole top wearing underneath, and the tiered skirt.
How do you like it?
